He Deserves Recognition – Menotti Puts Argentina Winger On Same Level As Messi, Maradona, Kempes

Former Argentina manager, Cesar Luis Menotti has claimed that he puts winger, Angel di Maria at the same level as Argentina legends, Diego Maradona, Mario Kempes and Lionel Messi.

Kempes led Argentina to win the 1978 FIFA World Cup as he also won the Golden Boot and the Golden Ball during the tournament.

Maradona led Argentina to World Cup glory eight years later, winning the Golden Ball for his brilliant performances in Mexico.

Messi, on the other hand, fired La Albiceleste to win the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar, as he won the Golden Ball during the competition.

But Menotti believes Di Maria should be getting the same recognition and respect in Argentina as Kempes, Maradona and Messi.

Menotti told SuperDeportivoRadio (h/t AlbicelesteTalk): “Di María is a player who deserves the same recognition as the great footballers.”

“I put him at the level of Kempes, Maradona and Messi. He’s a player who has represented Argentine football like no other in all places,” he said.
